On Thursday, the newest tenant in Donald Trump's 40 Wall Street, a 70-story skyscraper in Manhattan's Financial District, will hand Mr. Trump a security deposit worth about $176,000. No money will change hands—just three 32-ounce bars of gold, each about the size of a television remote control. ... "It's a sad day when a large property owner starts accepting gold instead of the dollar," Mr. Trump said in an interview. "The economy is bad, and Obama's not protecting the dollar at all....If I do this, other people are going to start doing it, and maybe we'll see some changes." [WSJ via BI]
